THE REGION...WITH A RAIN AND SNOW MIX LIKELY GENERALLY
SOUTH OF A LINE FROM TULSA TO FAYETTEVILLE.  CURRENTLY
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN IN THE MID TO UPPER
30S WHICH WILL GREATLY REDUCE THE POTENTIAL FOR SNOW

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A RAIN AND SNOW MIX IS LIKELY TO BE ONGOING THURSDAY MORNING

SNOW ACCUMULATIONS POSSIBLE.  TEMPERATURES WILL WARM WELL
ABOVE FREEZING BY THURSDAY AFTERNOON WHICH WILL TRANSITION

FROM SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA INTO WESTERN ARKANSAS...AGAIN WITH
ANY ACCUMULATIONS EXPECTED TO REMAIN LIGHT.

TEMPERATURES WILL WARM WELL ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH THE
WEEKEND...WITH WARM AND BREEZY CONDITIONS EXPECTED ON
SUNDAY WHICH WILL RAISE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.
